Last Chance Performances are sung solo by the bottom three contestants in front of a judging panel and occasional guest judges. The purpose of a last chance performance is to determine who will be sent home that week. Ryan Murphy makes the ultimate decision.
32 of the first season's 56 songs were Last Chance Performances.
